I spent the day with Kaffe Fasset and Liza Prior Lucy for their snowball quilt workshop from his book Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts. OMG, it was amazing. I had such a good time with all these talented ladies. We were able to learn from the best. He taught us color ideas and how to choose fabrics that complement other fabrics. He was so easy to talk to and he helped us pick which fabric would work with our quilt and which ones wouldn't (he made me take out my navy blue pieces). Liza brought tons of fabric from her internet store and sold a bunch! Here are some pictures of our great day...
This is my design wall. Kaffe has us hang a very nappy flannel on the wall so we can "try out" our design. We would place the fabrics up and then look at them through and magnifying glass. Then Kaffe would come by to our design wall and make sugguestions.
In the above photo, I am on the left of my design wall and Mary Ann from Ohio is on the right. We took yesterday's class together with Lyric Kinard and she stopped by to say hi to me. We are definately keeping in touch. This is my first year at the Paducah AQS but this is her 18th year here in a row. Her husband comes with her and he seems very nice and played golf for the days she was in class. I think Kevin would love to play golf with him and we are already planning our next year trip. I have met many people from all around the world.
Everybody hard at work on their design wall.
This is mine so far. We only stuck it up there without pins. No sewing in the class. We pinned it up after the class was over and rolled it up on our flannel to take it home and sew it. What do you think? He loved it and so do I!
Kevin and I are done tomorrow. We catch our flight tomorrow afternoon so only a little more shopping before leaving.
